Syfy Orders BOOSTER GOLD Pilot Script

DC Comics' Booster Gold may have lost his solo ongoing series a few months ago, but may have a shot at something even better.

The Hollywood Reporter states that the SyFy ghost science-fiction channel has ordered a pilot script for a one-hour drama based on The Greatest Hero You Never Heard Of. 

The project from Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Horizon Television, will feature Greg Berlanti (Brothers & Sisters, No Ordinary Family, Green Lantern) as an executive producer.  Fringe writer Andrew Kreisberg, who worked with Berlanti on ABC's Eli Stone, will handle the script and executive produce.  DC Comics is also listed as executive producer.

According to the article, the story focuses on Booster Gold, "a washed-up athlete from the future who travels back to the present in hopes of becoming the greatest super hero of all time.  Instead of chasing criminals, however, his main priority is chasing fame and money.  But Booster Gold discovers that being a hero takes more than just a megawatt smile, and that the future doesn’t happen without first protecting the present."

Booster Gold recently appeared in live-action in "Booster," an episode from the tenth and final season of the CW's Smallville.  He was played by actor Eric Martsolf.
